Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry

Submitted by Hannah

I love a good stir fry and as much as chinese take-out is a weakness of mine I've discovered I can make a pretty healthy and tasty version at home. This is an easy but flavorful recipe.


2 1/2 Tbsp Cornstarch, divided
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 pound lean sirloin thinly sliced
2 tsp canola oil
1 cup chicken broth, divided
5 cups Broccoli
1/2 Tbsp grated fresh Ginger (it calls for 1 Tbsp I lowered it a bit)
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (more if you like spicy)
1/4 cup soy sauce (low sodium)
1/2 cup water


On a plate, combine 2 Tbsp cornstarch and salt; add beef and toss to coat.

Heat oil in a large nonstick wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef and stir-fry until lightly browned, about 3 minutes; transfer to a bown with slotted spoon.

Add 1/2 cup broth to same pan; stir to loosen any bits on pan. Add broccoli; cover and cook, tossing occasionally and sprinkling with a Tbsp of water if needed, until broccoli is almost crisp tender, about 3 minutes. Uncover pan and add ginger, garlic and pepper flakes; stir-fry until fragrant about 1 minute.

In a cup, stir together soy sauce, remaining 1/2 cup broth, remaining 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch and water until blended; stir into pan. Reduce heat to medium-low and bring to a simmer; simmer until slightly thickened, about 1 minute.

Return beef and toss to coat.

Serves 4 - 1 1/4 cup servings 5 WW Plus points

I served this over Jasmine rice and I added extra vegetables since I had them on hand (carrots and yellow pepper strips)
